Hey has anyone ever dove spoonbill bluff at table rock? Was it cool? What Other sites has everyone hit? I've dove: duck island, breezy point, the saddle, Zebulan pike, and the cabin cruiser.

I've dove the same. This weekend I did some shore diving at Dewey Short by the State Park. Previously, dove Moonshine Beach. Quick dives. Definately need a boat to see what the lake has to offer. Would love to dive the old Kimberling City Bridge, but not comfortable with the depth right now.

How was the vis this weekend? I bet it was pretty busy.
How deep is the bridge? Where on the lake is it?

I am not sure how deep the bridge is but here is a good earth link. I think that the bridge is around 90ft. Just a guess though.

The bridge dive is a deco dive IIRC. Some guys on TDS are planning a dive on it and to the river channel below. They are using helium and accelarated deco. You might want to train a bit more for it.

Yeah I guess so I would need a lot more training... What the heck is IIRC???? I did not realize that it was such a deep dive... thanks FD

I think that the top of the bridge is about 100-110', bridge deck at about 140', and the river bed at 175'. You could do the top of the bridge, or the deck w/o deco, but your stay will be VERY short.

Considering you get about 19 minutes for the dive at 100 feet which is the top of the bridge and you will spend 3 or 4 minutes going down you'll have about 15 minutes to explore the top of it. Go down deeper and it decreases to 9 minutes at 130 feet. That would give you 5 minutes to explore the deck.

Then it's time to head up. Remember per tables you count dive time as the time from starting the descent to the time you start up, and that's it. A computer would give you a bit more time but not much because it's a pretty square profile.

A deco dive is actually in order here if you wanted to really check it out. You don't need trimix or anything, just advanced Nitrox and do a deco dive.

Well I guess that I will not be checking that one out... Well not for a while anyway..

I agree, deco would be the way to go on this one. Without it, you just don't get enough time.

I could see plenty in 5 minutes, why I bet I could get 20 feet worth of bridge explored here.:smiley5:

That's the problem with a dive like this one, it's very limited for a recreational diver. I myself will do this one after I get the training to do so, and the gear.

Look at it this way just do 6 dives over the coarse of a weekend and you will have 30 minutes down there. Doesn't that sound like fun ;-)
